Broken Built-in Diffuser Plate

Hi,

Maybe for extended use, maybe a weak point of the flash, but my built-in diffuser plate was broken off from the flash. It's only one side of the little hinge that's broken off. Does anybody know where I can find a spare part to replace it, or how else I can repair it? Thanks.

    I recently purchased one second hand that is missing the build in diffuser (from the Nikon SB-800).

    How bad is this for photographing, what are my options.

When I changed Pentair Whiperflo motor with new Impeller & Diffuser seals the new motor shaft does not turn. Diffuser is pressing against Impellor not allowing it to rotate. What is wrong ?


Take the Diffuser off and run it if the impeller turns then might be tightening the Diffuser too much, it just needs to not move, doesnt really need a super waterproof seal or anything like that. If it still doesnt turn with the Diffuser off it might have locked up when replacing the Impeller, you can try to turn the impeller manually or remove the cover plate on the back of the moter and turn the shaft manually back there. OOoorr you broke it

DIY Pop-up Flash Diffuser


Wanting to lessen the power of your flash with under exposing your picture/subject?
Want to add natural light bounce to your subject and lessen shadows?
Wanting to have a pop-up flash diffuser without spending a dime?How about removing shadow cast when doing some macro shots?
If your answer to these questions are YES, then time to read this DIY guide. This should be easy to follow and the material(s) needed should be available in your home.
First, let's briefly discuss what a diffuser is. A diffuser lessens the strong/ harsh light coming from your camera's built-in pop-up flash, creating a softer and distributes the light evenly on your picture.
There are lots of pop up diffusers out there and are relatively cheap. However here's one that I've tried and tested and worked fine for me. Take the cap of your empty roll-on(deo) place it with your hand, right at the front of the pop-up flash(in it's popped out position). Then take a picture using flash. Try it with and w/o the cap to see the difference. Not impressed? Try it first and explore new ways of getting better pictures.

The light diffuser cover is broken. The model number of the range hood is HO60488. The range hood dates back to possibly the late 1950's when the house was built.


When faced with the total unavailability of replacement parts, its time to get creative, and make your own diffuser cover. Flat ones
can be easily made - find anything plastic that's semi-translucent (like a plastic milk bottle), and cut it with a utility knife.
I have also used a utility knife to cut a polystyrene diffuser cover
originally intended for a 2-ft x 4-ft suspended ceiling fluorescent light fixture.
In case the diffuser cover you make wants to burn when placed close to a light bulb, replace the bulb with a CFL (compact fluorescent) bulb, which run MUCH cooler than incandescent light bulbs.
Old lampshades can be cut and used, but may need to be ironed flat. The major advantage of lampshade material is that
it can be folded over at the edge once or twice, which will fill space - and possibly hold the cover where a plastic sheet might be too loose.
You'll know that your efforts have met with success when you can easily remove your ne diffuser cover to replace the light bulb.

To replace a bulb I pulled down on the diffuser, expecting the tension wires to be holding it up. After forcing it down, it broke off and there are no wires. I have three more bathrooms with the same...


I have the same fan and it is a pain to replace bulbs. There are two "V" shaped springs that hold the diffuser in place on mine. I pull the diffuser down until the springs (actually heavy gauge rods) are fully extended, maybe 4-6 inches. I then tip the diffuser and get my hand in to remove and then replace the bulbs. If your units were "altered" by someone forcing them in the past, you may have bigger problems. The springs are hard to bend to get the diffuser down and the upper part of the springs actually rub on the metal housing of the fan. Perhaps a little WD40 where the springs enter the metal housing will help a bit.

My speedlite keeps flashing the zoom control and freezes


Make sure the built-in diffuser is pushed in all the way... that diffuser is only designed to work when in "14-mm" mode so whenever that diffuser is down, even just a little bit, the entire display will flash and 14 mm will be shown as the focal length of the flash.

Zoom range 14-17mm


make sure the diffusion dome and the built in wide angle adaptor are off. If the diffusion dome is on, it will only work as 14mm and 17mm without the diffuser but with the wide angle panel.
